    For the second time now in a week I've been burned.

    Case 1: Focus is set "down" since I want it to die. Focus is the ONLY skill set down. It is possible I left something else set to "up", but highly unlikely. I moved a skill back to my mage, from a Soulstone, expecting that Focus would decrease by 15 points, but no. "Your skill in Inscription has been reduced by 15 points and is now 85.0". I about blew a gasket, since I had locked it. I looked at skill gui and Inscription was now set to "up" and instead of a GM scribe I was having to work last 15 points again. Instead of enjoying my first weekend back in the game I made scrolls for about a day and a half. Paged a GM, they answered, can not help. Fantastical.

    Case 2: Today, Focus set down still, only focus set down. I had just GM Lockpicking and locked it (ironic eh), logged, played on another character, then thought hey I will go ahead and eat Cartography 5.0 SoT I got my hands on and finish that the easy way.... did focus go down? no. This time, Lockpicking. Yup. Paged a GM again, but I'm too peeved to stay logged in. There are some nuances I don't get, but I am not an idiot. By not an idiot, I mean that absolutely NO I did not have lockpicking set down, and since I had just recently recovered from getting burned on losing 15 points of Inscription, I made sure it was locked. I had skills locked, or set down, so how in the hell did this happen?

    Logic tells me, the only skill set down, should go down. A friend in game told me this was a bug that had been talked about before., so , what was said?

    -edit for accuracy's sake, Meditation is also set 'down'

    -still steaming the next day. 2 skills set to down, and eating a 5.0 SoT to gain in Cartography, takes away 5 points from a skill THAT IS NOT SET 'DOWN''. WHY?

    Time to eat crow. GM that talked with me this morning, agreed to meet again when I got ahold of another scroll. This happened shortly since lo and behold there was a 5.0 Lockpicking SoT in Luna vendor. Did the same things, stoned off a skill, put it back on, etc, recreated the situation leaving 2 skills down, Focus with 12.xx remaining and Meditation with 109.xxx or something more ...., set Cartography 'up', and ate the scroll with GM standin by and.... everything was fine. Med moved down, which is what I would expect. I did it, own it, lesson learned. RTFM, as it were.
